Drowning in a blue inkwell
Suffocating in your words
Unraveled and chaotic
My sublime to your absurd

Hidden treasures I do find
In some of your rambling thoughts
Falsehoods spiraling
The words you choose say a lot

Careful conjecture takes me
To a place I cannot delve
Love inconspicuously
Keeps my heart upon a shelf

Wax my darling poetic
With an ounce or two of rhyme
Every word you have spoken
Forever kept in my mind

Straight is the arrow you aim
From dear Cupid’s wordy bow
A bullseye when you kiss me
A miss when you let me go

Parting is such sweet sorrow
The romantic oft’ will say
When Dear John starts your letter
No words can cradle the break
